South Asia population in danger because of heat waves

South Asia population in danger because of heat waves

In 2015, a heat wave killed thousands of people in Pakistan

If the global warming continues, heat waves will make parts of South Asia in a hell by the end of this century.

A combination of extreme heat and high humidity will take dangerous forms for residents in dense populations in India, Pakistan, Sri Lanka and Bangladesh.

This is predicted by American scientists in the scientific magazine Science Advances. Read More

Sea Level nearly doubles

Sea Level Rising nearly doubles

Antarctica has the potential to contribute more than a meter of sea-level rise by 2100 and more than15 meters by 2500

By the end of this century, the sea level nearly doubles: The sea would rise twice as high as predicted so far.

This is what researchers Robert DeConto and David Pollard reported in Nature. Read More

different technologies can be used for micro-CHP, including stirling engines, rankine engines, internal combustion engines, and fuel cells.

Fuel cell based micro CHP units in homes and commercial buildings can help the electricity grid assimilate more renewables according to the Technical University of Denmark.

Scientists published a report explaining the need to create a market for electricity services to draw new technologies such as micro CHP into wider use and accelerate the cost reduction needed for general consumer uptake. Read More

renewable geothermal heat source, which will supply between 40 and 50% of our heat requirements.

The Technical University of Delft want the campus to be energy neutral by 2020. Part of this metamorphosis involves a new smart heat grid.

TU Delft is converting the existing heating system into a smart heat grid that provides heat at various temperature levels from various conventional and renewable heat sources.

Scenarios: A green revolution has winners and losers

oil, fossil, green energy, revolution, scenario, transition, Europe

List of oil producing countries in the world

A green revolution will ensure winners and losers. The coffers of the oil-producing countries will become discharged and that leads to riots and instability.

Germany and Denmark are Europe’s big winners in this green revolution. Why?

  • Since 20 years, they closed all the nuclear power and coal plants
  • Roofs without solar panels are a rarity
  • Windmills seems to be the new high voltage towers: ugly but indispensable
  • Efficient appliances and lighting hardly costs for electricity are very low
  • Heating the house becomes from the heat of the earth
  • Electricity excess is stored in batteries with ammonia, as big as garage
